    Brown/hazel is dominant over blue,
    but it also depends what your and your partner's parents' eye colors are.
    Here you can attempt to calculate the probabilities:

    My entire family is blue eyed "mother - father - siblings..

    His family are all hazel from what i remember, i will have to take a better look when i see them again, but i'm pretty sure they are all hazel....

    The link you provided showed the first two eye colours as brown, then a blue, a green and two more brown

    You have to keep clicking on them until the right color shows up.
    I don't think most eye color calculators have hazel,
    it's just considered brown.
    I calculated the results based on what you wrote:
    13.6% blue
    13.6% green
    72.7% brown

    The best way to ensure eye color preservation is by reproducing with someone of the same eye color.

    I do love my light eyes. However, I don't think of brown eyes as being impure. I think they can be quite interesting.

    It all depends. Hazel eye pigment is always heterozygous, blue eye pigment may well be homozygous. If the blue-eyed partner is one of those rare homozygous cases, chances are actually that the blue is dominant over the brown.

    Other than this, calculation won't help much here. Two heterozygously brown-eyed people might well have a horde of blue-eyed children --- genes don't always recombine by pure statistical maths, in fact they rarely ever do. It could thus re-emerge

    In fact, it is actually much more likely, or at least as likely that two heterozygous brown-eyed people have a blue-eyed child than if one heterozygously blue-eyed and one homozygously brown-eyed person choose to procreate.

    Trouble is, you can't choose: You cannot tell whether someone is homozgyous or heterozygous by plain sight. You can't even tell if you analyse their near ancestors - that one other gene strain might have been dormant for generations and even centuries.

    This means that, as a general rule, one should assume that they're heterozygous, homozygosity is very rare, typically less than 2% of a population with common occurence of recessive pigment traits, or more typically for brown-eyeds (it is much more likely to have no blue-eyed ancestors than to have no brown-eyed ancestors).

    Even with a relatively homogenous country as Iceland, one should assume this ration to rise no higher than 10%. Which is why in over 90% of cases, even there, the simplified dominant/recessive calculation you put forward is correct. However, these notable exceptions cannot be excluded, because they do occur, even for recessive traits.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    You are just doing semantics, the statistics are correct for groups, not just merely individual chances.
    If a brown eyed person mates with a blue eyed person, in most cases it will come up brown, simply as that, this is not just statistically, but empirically proven.

    I have a nephew whose eyes are very dark/black. All of my family and his mother are English, but his father had Indian genes. When he was little and wrapped up in a blanket, he looked just like a little papoose.
